    They found a Sky Crane somewhere and it's hauling a whole lot of water per trip.

    Thanks, SM, but we are on the other side of Canon City itself, so the various firefighters and the city fire department will do
    everything to stop it from reaching the city., let alone all the way out to us.

    Very humbling to watch the awesome power of it.

    started a topic Forest Fire!

    Forest Fire!

    Some excitement last evening...a forest fire broke out wight miles form us in the Temple Canyon area. Stated at a half acre when reported, now at 120 acres and still growing, zero per cent contained - rough terrain back there.

    Watched the flames crest the ridge and roar down the slope while overhead the choppers kept up a steady relay of water buckets. Later, Carson sent some Chinooks with bigger buckets to help out.

    Pax got some photos which I'll post as soon as she gets them uploaded.
